Tick, tock, tick, tock - not a bomb, no, no! Love this shot, all detail and fuzz. I feel all neglected and out of it, next time count me in!! I love the colours, too...

excellent shot. I like how you focused on the gear over the clock face. Wonderful colors and detail and a good take on the work theme.

Duncan Galbraith from kyoto, Japan

Hey man, this looks just lovely, the lighting is absolutely dreamy, it gives a cold metallic and rigid mechanism such warmth. Really inventive and well realised take on the theme mate. This is as I told you a few days back, one of your best shots for me, full stop.

Michael Zhang from New York City, United States

Great short DOF, amazing closeup of watch parts! I also like the gold/yellow/rusty feeling overtone to it.

Chris Sullivan from Melbourne, Australia

Excellent take on the subject mate! I like how peoples styles are showing through their pieces - here the composition is spot-on; the clock in the background reminds us what these gears are driving but you've flipped it and placed the emphasis on the gears, hence "clockwork"; fine work. The post-work is excellent as always, can't wait to see tomorrows!

Martine Lapointe from Québec, Canada

Great one! I continue the Still's idea: The work of the time ... and of the man!
